Bearcats defeat Marist 3-1

Box Score

POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y.--Junior outside hitter Morgan Jimerson (Grandview, N.Y./Nyack) led four Binghamton players with double-figure kills and the Bearcats (12-9) were 3-1 winners over host Marist (10-19) in a non-conference match on Wednesday evening.

"We started off strong but then struggled in the second game," head coach Glenn Kiriyama said. "We turned it around in the last two games by blocking well and winning a lot of long rallies."

Binghamton came out firing on all cylinders, cruising to a 30-17 victory in the first game behind a .410 team attack percentage. After a 30-15 setback in the second game, the Bearcats closed out the match by scores of 30-23 and 30-27 in the third and fourth games. It was the team's fourth straight victory over the Red Foxes.

Jimerson led Binghamton with 14 kills, while junior middle blocker Anne Crocus (Bethlehem, Pa./Freedom) added 13 kills and four blocks. Freshman middle hitter Megan Hoag (Brunswick, Ohio/Padua Franciscan) added 12 kills and junior outside hitter Michele Heck (Chicago, Ill./Resurrection) produced a double-double with 10 kills and 13 digs.

The Bearcats return to conference play with a pair of road matches this weekend. Binghamton will play at New Hampshire at 7 p.m. Friday and visit Maine at 7 p.m. Saturday.
